Cagayan de Oro City’s rapid growth and progress is not only evident with its robust economy but on its rising population as well.
Data from the City Civil Registry Office shows that 19,285 newborn babies and late registrants were registered last year.
In its annual report to City Mayor Vicente Y. Emano, the civil registry office issued marriage certificates to some 3,555 couples, including the issuance of 4,506 death certificates.
The City Civil Registry also intensified its house-to-house campaign in the hinterland barangays to ensure that all residents of Cagayan de Oro have birth records in their office.
As part of its public service, the Civil Registry Office waived the payments and fees on birth registration and marriage certificates during the holding of the People to People Program (PPP) in various barangays.
For her part, City Civil Registrar Norma Diputado is urging the transacting public to avail of their frontline services, particularly the mass birth registration, citing the importance of said pertinent documents. (CIO/PIA10)
